You guys know this happens with every game you're psyched about right?

 

It's not called the GW2 effect... you guys act like this is your first rodeo.

My 2 brothers and i loved the game. it's ran great for us. No crashes only 1 chat bug out of 3 days, and relog fixes everythings. This game will be the game of the year. GW2 is the ONLY fun game in the market that not a wow's clone game, we'll be playing in the next beta ( soon, i hope ) with alot of friends. Hope to see u all in game.

 

ps: Why are there so many hate threads about gw2? is it cool to hate everythings? it's must be cool to hate life, gw2, air, foods.

Its to counter punch the nauseating fanboi posts from the GW2 sales reps here going overboard....The Game is nothing NEW......Face it.....There are only so many ways the keyboard/mouse/controller can be utilized in a 2d/3d computer game...Other then jacking in (Strange Days ref.) Its going to be more of the same old same old.....I predict that sometime in the near future you people will realize this and be less inclined to jump on the bandwagons you hitch yourselves to.  Don't worry, like women(or men for the ladies on here) , another one will be around shortly.......

If you honestly don't see what this game brings to the genre, you obviously have not played it. I'm not going to try to explain why you're wrong, it will be a wasted effort but needless to say, you are.

I played it and saw nothing new that hasn't been done in GW1 or other games......You can mix the leggos into different patterns all you like and delude yourself into thinking you have something new, but all you really have is leggos.....  Play more games and you'll see......

That's all well and good, but I think many people are just glad to finally see those legos arranged in a new and creative way that's, for many, just all together fun for a change. We've been looking at the same lego structure for years (as well as sloppy lego structures that tried to imitate one particular structure). I've personally been jaded and disappointed with almost everything since EQ, so to actually have fun in an MMO after so long is very refreshing.

If curmudgeons need to hate on that they're more than welcome to, nothings for everyone. For me it's a relief to feel something other than disgust towards what MMOs have become, so I'm going to enjoy that while it lasts, whether it's just a few months or longer. I'm sure I'll be back on the other side of the fence at some point in the future (hopefully far in the future), and I'm sure that when I am I'll miss the feeling of actually enjoting something, so I might as well make the most of this while it lasts. :) 

Also, anyone who's expecting more than just 'Legos arranged differently', might be looking in the wrong place. Like scenes in movie or words in a book, there are only so many way's to interact with and arrange a video game. Yet we're all completely aware that there are still GOOD books (even after centuries of arrangement) and bad books, GOOD films and bad films, depending on taste. 

I'm not going to say a book was bad because it just had rearranged words in it, that'd be naive. And likewise it'd be foolish to draw the same comparison with games.

Good points...I like to use analogies....Here is another one....Quit trying to sell buckets of poop to sanitation workers....

Now, before the flaming arrows are launched , did anyone else get tired of the Pavlovian Dog-like awards constantly popping up in the corner of the screen telling them they just finished the same area quest that they had finished umpteen times before?.......I swear I could see a picture in my mind of kids in a trance, running arround being conditioned by all the shiny medal giving / positive opperant conditioning, to salivate everytime they see the letter GW2 flashed in front of them...Did the mere mention of a shiny cyber HERO medals popping up in the corner of your screen make you salivate?  Just some observations, a little critical thinking I believe....I could be wrong.

so how long is it gonna take gw2 to suffer the swtor effect.you know,the community hyping the game like its the 2nd coming of christ and then the game ends up flopping because people went into it with a bit to much hope

 

Its not hype any more...people have played it

 

yeah,they played the beta

Me too! My goodness it was so much fun and I completed all of Queensdale to 100%. Took me the whole weekend but I took my time!

Also went exploring the whole of Lion's Arch. Probably my most favorite area, slightly above Queensdale.

I'm nuts over the good underwater gameplay. I miss that so much in many games nowadays.

LOL the funny thing about what you said is that its the only thing keeping poeple playing WOW, Rift, SWtOR, TERA,  what do you think gear grind is?  What do you think raids are?  What do you think that does to a person.  Its all the raiders, and other grinders that are conditioned to salivate.  And the funny thing is that you don't see it.  Well perhaps not funny more sad but still.

Actually the game hasn't grabbed me yet but I will still give it more time and keep an open mind. I"m not simply sold on games so easily anymore until I put a month or more playtime into them.

 

Lotro to me is still worth popping back into as well. Different game style with a different story. Lotro is basically your typical themepark but even to this day it still manages to do it "differently" than most the rest. At least that is refreshing. Personaly I hope Turbine goes back to their origin some day. Truly I do hope GW2 grabs me at some point though. 

You stay sassy!

 but all you really have is leggos.....

Its Lego you infidel.

 

The word Lego is both singular and plural. You can have a piece of Lego. You can have a box of Lego. Its Lego.

 

Jesus christ have mercy.

 

Also, GW2 is awesome.

You know, its quite possible that "the gw2 effect" is a government conspiracy to control our minds.

I would direct you to this site for some food for thought...

Bzzt...wrong! After beta testing AoC, I knew it was shit. SWG didnt interest before it released, I bought it anyway and have never been more disappointed. The hype youre hearing now about GH2 though? The stuff people are saying after actually having been ingame? Thats as real as it gets. Even in its current state, its a damn fine game. Divinity's Reach alone puts any zone in SWG to shame, and its a starter city. It feels alive, its fun to explore, you WANT to see all of it.

 

The game is big, beautiful and fun.

 

Hype justified.

I have had a lot more fun in Uncharted Waters Online than GW2, that is for sure. That is where I can agre with you wholeheartedly.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

I followed and supported Rift pre beta, but once I played it I really didn't like it much.

I followed and supported GW2 pre beta, but once I played it my enthusiasm was not only justified, it increased.

Make of that what you will.

My 2 brothers and i loved the game. it's ran great for us. No crashes only 1 chat bug out of 3 days, and relog fixes everythings. This game will be the game of the year. GW2 is the ONLY fun game in the market that not a wow's clone game, we'll be playing in the next beta ( soon, i hope ) with alot of friends. Hope to see u all in game.

 

ps: Why are there so many hate threads about gw2? is it cool to hate everythings? it's must be cool to hate life, gw2, air, foods.

Its to counter punch the nauseating fanboi posts from the GW2 sales reps here going overboard....The Game is nothing NEW......Face it.....There are only so many ways the keyboard/mouse/controller can be utilized in a 2d/3d computer game...Other then jacking in (Strange Days ref.) Its going to be more of the same old same old.....I predict that sometime in the near future you people will realize this and be less inclined to jump on the bandwagons you hitch yourselves to.  Don't worry, like women(or men for the ladies on here) , another one will be around shortly.......

If you honestly don't see what this game brings to the genre, you obviously have not played it. I'm not going to try to explain why you're wrong, it will be a wasted effort but needless to say, you are.

I played it and saw nothing new that hasn't been done in GW1 or other games......You can mix the leggos into different patterns all you like and delude yourself into thinking you have something new, but all you really have is leggos.....  Play more games and you'll see......

That's all well and good, but I think many people are just glad to finally see those legos arranged in a new and creative way that's, for many, just all together fun for a change. We've been looking at the same lego structure for years (as well as sloppy lego structures that tried to imitate one particular structure). I've personally been jaded and disappointed with almost everything since EQ, so to actually have fun in an MMO after so long is very refreshing.

If curmudgeons need to hate on that they're more than welcome to, nothings for everyone. For me it's a relief to feel something other than disgust towards what MMOs have become, so I'm going to enjoy that while it lasts, whether it's just a few months or longer. I'm sure I'll be back on the other side of the fence at some point in the future (hopefully far in the future), and I'm sure that when I am I'll miss the feeling of actually enjoting something, so I might as well make the most of this while it lasts. :) 

Also, anyone who's expecting more than just 'Legos arranged differently', might be looking in the wrong place. Like scenes in movie or words in a book, there are only so many way's to interact with and arrange a video game. Yet we're all completely aware that there are still GOOD books (even after centuries of arrangement) and bad books, GOOD films and bad films, depending on taste. 

I'm not going to say a book was bad because it just had rearranged words in it, that'd be naive. And likewise it'd be foolish to draw the same comparison with games.

Good points...I like to use analogies....Here is another one....Quit trying to sell buckets of poop to sanitation workers....

Now, before the flaming arrows are launched , did anyone else get tired of the Pavlovian Dog-like awards constantly popping up in the corner of the screen telling them they just finished the same area quest that they had finished umpteen times before?.......I swear I could see a picture in my mind of kids in a trance, running arround being conditioned by all the shiny medal giving / positive opperant conditioning, to salivate everytime they see the letter GW2 flashed in front of them...Did the mere mention of a shiny cyber HERO medals popping up in the corner of your screen make you salivate?  Just some observations, a little critical thinking I believe....I could be wrong. 

I'm not a fan of achievements, they've always smacked of a cheap substitute for real content: 'Oh you beat that boss? Now try it while hopping on one foot LOL!'. No thanks. If they serve some purpose in GW2 that's all well and good, but generally they're easily ignorable and seemed to primarily be a means of informing you how much of an area you'd completed. Watching friends that had once been proud EQ players scuttle around in WoW trying to complete silly and arbitrary 'achievements' was nauseating. I much more appreciated completing 'achievements' that we'd set for ourselves (completing older raid content with just 6 people for example). That actually had some meaning to me at least.

I could be wrong, maybe in GW2 they serve some purpose beyond a means of gauging your progression in an area or as cheesey bragging rights, but I found them to be totally ignorable.

It'd be nice if I was wrong though, and it turned out they do serve some more utilitarian purpose I'm unaware of, but I have a feeling they're just as you described. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong and there's more to the system though.
